The Ripple Inn Gets a New Chef

The Ripple Inn (929 E. Westfield Blvd., 252-2600) will be shaking things up this month. The restaurant has hired native Hoosier Joseph Davey as its new executive chef. Davey previously worked at Chicago’s Alinea, which received a three-star ranking from Michelin last November. He is currently a full-time instructor at the Chef’s Academy. Co-owner Jason Tipton says that the new menu will feature dishes that “are going to be a little more in line with this market.”
Having tinkered with the Inn’s dishes already, Davey is planning on creating his own menu. “Right now it’s all ideas in my head,” he says. “I kind of want to come out guns blazing.”
